The Cabin in the Mountains: A Norwegian Odyssey
The holiday cabin, or hytte, is a staple of Norwegian life. Turf-roofed and wooden-built, offering fresh air, breathtaking views and peaceful isolation, the hytte is a crucial part of Norwegian national identity.
In 2016, Robert Ferguson and his wife bought a piece of land high up in the Hardangervidda, and on it they built a cabin. As the cabin takes shape, Ferguson learns how native Norwegians have married a new-found urban affluence to their past as a tight-knit rural community-nation, and confronts his own ideas about the dream-tradition of the hytte, drawing an affectionate but unsentimental portrait of Norwegian culture, society and landscape.

'An uncompromising journey into the dark cold north, to reveal the warmth that comes from deep community bonds' Tim Ecott
